Dangote Industries Case Study


Dangote Industries

Driving global awareness among BDMs




Global awareness | Consumer engagement 


Dangote wanted to drive global awareness of its brand by showcasing its dedication to empowering and improving the quality of lives across the African continent. 

Dangote also wanted to increase consumer engagement with its brand in key markets across Africa, Asia, and the US.


Our solution was a branded content cross-platform campaign. There were four key pillars: CNN editorial sponsorship, GBS sponsored content, branded content and an advertising campaign. Dangote Industries featured across TV, digital and social. A bespoke ad feature page was also created.

The campaign focused on stories told by real people and the connections they have with each other, navigated by Dangote Industries.

Brand Campaign

A bespoke brand campaign extended campaign reach and shared Dangote’s key messages with CNN’s global audience. US Domestic feed aired 30s Dangote Corporate TVC to ensure the Dangote brand established a US presence. This included digital ads, social posts, a 30s Dangote corporate TVC, and a 15s Aliko Dangote Foundation fact file.
